 +A relay can support IPv6 by announcing an IPv6 address and port for the
 OR protocol, which may then be confirmed as reachable by the <a
 href="glossary.html#directory-authority">directory authorities</a>, and by
 permitting exiting to IPv6 targets.
 This sentence is hard to read, I suggest we split it into two sentences,
 one about ORPorts, and one about exiting.

 +A bridge can support IPv6 by announcing an IPv6 address and port for the
 OR protocol.
 This sentence could say that the bridge authority tests reachability, if
 #24264 gets fixed.

 +<li><b>confirmed:</b> Whether the directory authorities have confirmed
 IPv6 OR
 +reachability by including an "a" line for a relay containing an IPv6
 +(<b>"t"</b>) or not (<b>"f"</b>). If this column contains the empty
 string, all
 +running relays are included, regardless of whether their IPv6 address was
 +reachable. Always the empty string for bridges.</li>

 This paragraph is slightly inaccurate: authorities do reachability *and*
 consistency checks on the IPv6 address announced by the relay. There is no
 IPv6 "a" line in the consensus if there is a tied vote on the address.

 Also, maybe we should say "a" line in the consensus. I don't think we need
 to specify NS consensus, because it will be both consensuses when
 authorities upgrade to 0.3.3 (#23826).
